It’s our 6th Annual Thanksgiving Show featuring 2 of the most talented musical artists in Central New York!

Dusty Pas’cal is a husband, father to five children, and co-owner of his family’s company, Skaneateles-based D.B. Pascal Chimney and Roofing. He’s considered by many to be one of the top singer/songwriters in the Central New York region.

Dusty said that since he first picked up a guitar at age 13, he’s been a firm believer in the purity of his music. ?”Early on, I was influenced by guys like Kris Kristofferson and Jim Croce, because that’s who my dad listened to,” he said. ?”But actually, I was most influenced by my dad, who’s a songwriter himself.?”

“Lonesome,? is a heartbreaking ballad that includes lyrics written by Dusty’s father. “My dad came to one of my shows, and I could see him just sitting there writing something,” he recalled.  Dusty’s dad was in fact writing a poem about a friend of his who was on death’s doorstep, so Dusty set the poem, without changing a single word, to music.  “I know my dad so well, it just flowed out naturally.”

His three studio albums, Home (2006), More (2008), andHuman Heart (2012) have garnered attention in Central New York and across the nation; several tracks have been featured on local radio stations and internationally on XM Satellite Radio.

Dusty will move you from one end of music’s emotional spectrum to the other – and it will be a ride you’ll want to take again and again.
